There was a Frozen Yogurt food truck. I saw it. I loved it. I thought of home. Sadly, I did not get any. Poor me. But seeing it made my day so much better.
And then I got a red Adidas message bag. It is sooo cute and I love it. It makes me really happy.
I got a Swiss Army knife too.
I was a very happy camper today.
Now I have to pack and that kinda sucks. No, it really sucks because I'm leaving and I really want to stay but I want to go back to the States as well.
I want a bagel so bad.
I love bagels. I don't think that you will ever find someone who loves bagels more.
happiness strikes again because there are these really good chocolate bars in Switzerland and I got 50 of them for 12 Francs. They were for 20 but they were on sale.
Very happy Sophie because I mean come on, 50 bars of great chocolate on SALE?!?!
That's really all that happened today because I spent the day with my very chilled grandparents and had a great day.
I'll see you on the other side!! Tongue Tied -- Grouplove

So, I'm not dead, don't worry. I am still alive but just tired.
Ok so this month has been a hectic with hikes, family, swimming, sight-seeing and all that fun stuff. We went to Lausanne and Geneva. We went on several hikes overlooking the Alps. I went climbing for a week. 
But this month has been the best month that I have had in a long long long time. I left America and came to an amazing country and I got to have a break from all the crap that was going. I'm nervous about high school next year and it was nice not procrastinating and actually doing something productive  with my time. 
I love Switzerland so much and all the Swiss people. They are so chilled.
I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while and I still would like to tell you about my New York trip and my climbing camp. Not at this moment because it is 11:39 pm and I need to sleep. Eeekkk!! 
I come back to the States on Tuesday and I'm kinda ready to come back. I love Switzerland but I really want to see my friends and have an American breakfast. There is this really good breakfast place in Carrboro called Elmo's Diner and it has the best breakfast ever. I might be exaggerating but I love it. I love bagels so much. 
Ok, idea. I should have a blog post of all the food that I like. Which is a lot. 
I really want some pancakes. And bagels. Damn.
We watched the opening ceremony for the Olympics and OH MY GOODNESS!!! That was so cool!! If you didn't watch it, shame on you because it was really cool because they did British history.
But then we watched the highlights of the Beijing Olympics and then we were like "Oh, just kidding" 
The 2008 opening ceremony was awesome and they were all synchronized and it looked so amazing. Just watch it.
We watched a field hockey game today and HOLE SHIT!! it was fast and their stick work was unbelievable. I was in awe the entire first half.
Watching the Olympics makes me kinda sad because these people are so good and then I'm sitting their watching them. Word. I'm thinking 'Damn' 
They are really good and then your'e not. It's sad but it cool to be inspired by them.
OK I need to sleep. Sleeping is still a verb that I would like to keep in my vocab. Maybe.
I might have already posted this but Michel Telo -- Nossa Nossa
Pretty good stuff :)

Paddle Boating

Paddle Boating is great. It's pretty much the best because you are sitting down and peddling. It's like being on a bike but sitting in a more comfortable position.
We were in Lausanne -- which is really near to Geneva -- and my parents were seeing a friend and my sisters and I pulled on out bathing suits and went paddle boating.
It was so much fun we could stop and jump in and the water was colder the first couple of times that I jumped in but then it got warmers. We were further out thought, near the middle of the Lake Geneva so it was colder.
But it was SO MUCH FUN!!!
I'm going to a climbing camp next week or something. Yea :) I'm excited but it's gonna be hard but my sister went 2 years ago and she said it was really fun and one of her friends that went that year is going to go again this year. I'm gonna maybe meet her before hand. Her name is Michele and she seems really nice.
Sorry this post are getting to much shorter!!!
I will have photos up one day... I have a lot of them :)
But the song for today is Amy MacDonald -- Life in a Beautiful Light. Her new album came out and it is really good!
Ok, I need to go on a run.

So much has happened

So, I haven't written in a while and sorry about that.
I really have no excuses but I'm in Switzerland right now and I'm feeling pretty good.
My dad is form Switzerland and it is a great time to work on my Swiss-German, look at all the sights and keep up with some of my friends.
I love it here. There are so many spectacular views and I love eating all the fresh food. I love walking next to the river and watching the ice-blue water flow by in a a hurry. It has rained a lot but that doesn't mean that we can't go shopping!!
We went to H&M and I got a really cute shirt.
My sister and I walked in to the Metro, which is like a retro clothing store, and there were so many really super cute bikinis and that made me happy. I didn't buy any because I don't really have any money. Ok I lied,  I have 40 Francs but the bikini was like 30 or something crazy and I didn't want to pay that.
We walked up 288 steps to get to our house and that was an adventure because let me tell you, I am not in shape.
But that is ok because I have a month before field hockey try-outs start and I do have running clothes. And a field hockey stick.
So Thun is really living up to what I remembered. Nothing really big has changed.
BUT the swans left!!!
So what? There are just swans?
They are more than swans. Swans have been in the river that flows through Thun as long as I can remember and there are not as many ducks as there were. Ever!!
This is so sad.  :(
So the song that I'm going to do makes me really happy. Its my song :) The Wanted -- Glad You Came
